It looks like a modern take on This restaurants with flashier decor and less Thai design, but the food is good. It did not disappoint my expectations of Thai flavors and spices. The service is friendly and quick.

Found Thainy by accident and we're glad we did. A great and varied menu with lots of choices for the vegetarian youngest! Super friendly and nice prices - and the beer was lovely and icy cold! We'd happily go again.

I go to Thainy when my favorite Thai restaurant next door has a long wait. Thainy has pretty much your average food that you get at Thai restaurants. The one thing that was cool is they have really great drinks so it's nice to go for dinner. It's also a sizeable restaurant so it's rare that you're waiting for a... More

I visited this restaurant on a recent NY getaway. The spring roll appetizers were very nice and enjoyed by everyone in our party of six. I had the Tom Yum meal soup with chicken and it was excellent. Three of my dinner companions had the pad Thai and raved about it, also the tofu dish my friend had looked great.... More

Not sure why this gets rave reviews. The music was too loud. The bench seats too short for comfort. They insisted we sit on up front rather than going further into avoid the breeze of cold air as the door opened each time , claiming a business meeting, which never materialized. I ordered Thai fish cake appetizer which tasted like... More

I haven't tried all their dishes, but I usually get the chicken pad thai. It's nothing special and it does the job to make me full. One time I was here with some friends the servers weren't very attentive. It wasn't a big deal to me at the time, but it will be for other customers. The last time I... More

I am pleased to say that I finally did get to try this place which has been on the market for nearly five years now on 3rd Ave. I have to say I was bit skeptical when entered as it was not that busy compared to next door Thai Resturant. So took the chance and I can only say I... More

Wow-so glad I stopped in. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool you. Had noodles with chicken and broccoli in a sweet sauce. Lunch included an appetizer. I had the chicken dumplings-fantastic! Service was exceptionally fast. If you are in the area, definitely stop in.

We have been to Thainy many times. The lunch is good and you can choose good combinations for a reasonable price. We like the food. We like the spices used. The food we still can recommend but the ambiance is now terrible, Worn down furniture, taped sofas, bad worn down tables and even the China was quite worn. We hope... More
